Christmas Time Is Here originally appeared on the 1965 TV special "A Charlie Brown Christmas" and has since become a staple of holiday music. This version for percussion ensemble aims to feel intimate and light, but also makes use of the original's distinctive harmony to weave melody and accompaniment layers through the ensemble.
